That would be crazy lol, Could you imagine? I mean all manufactures in 2019 should be studying how Toyota makes such a reliable car...

My F30 has been pretty damn good, But its hard to be as good as Toyota at reliability they are the benchmark.

Toyota Supra TRD Performance Line Concept to be revealed in Japan

Quote:
A Toyota Supra TRD Concept is on its way, and we only have to wait till February 9 to see it. Officially named the Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD (that's the last time we'll say that, too) it looks like a racy Supra with a big ol' wing hanging out the back.

All we have to go on is the sketch of the car's silhouette, which looks pretty good. The folks over at TRD generally bring more to the party than just aesthetic updates, though. We'll be intrigued to see if any significant power is added to the equation, possibly enough to bring it in line with the BMW Z4's 382 horsepower? Maybe we're dreaming. Aero, brake and suspension enhancements are most likely a given. The sketch is definitely exaggerating how low to the ground it'll ultimately stand, but we're still excited to see how Toyota chooses to modify the Supra first.

If Toyota were to rip the wing off the Mk IV and slap it on this car we wouldn't be disappointed. As of now they appear to be going the more functional route for the concept, with a wing designed to produce copious amounts of downforce. It's easy to begin speculating like mad about a car like this, but we should keep in mind that it's only a concept. What ultimately makes it into production or an aftermarket parts catalog is anyone's guess.

In case you were thinking of going to see it, know that TRD is pulling the wraps off at the Osaka Automesse in Japan a long flight away from the Supra's reveal in Detroit last month. If you missed out on all the juicy details then, there's a backlog of Supra content for you to catch up on; from all the details on features and specs at the reveal, to comparisons, to our varied opinions on the new Supra, we've got you covered.

There's no toyota tech in the z4/supra.
Its all 3/1 series tech, like every other z4 generation before it.
If you look at the underside of the g29, its all so familiar if you work on bmw's. No toyota influence to be found.

I've tried and tried to like this car....but I can't...looks like absolute shit and doesn't have any reasonable measure of performance to at least carry it past it's ugly. The head lights and tail lights are fugly as hell. It's like short, droopy and and typical riced out Toyota design language.
Huge fail.
Honestly, I'd rather a BRZ over this any day.

I'm curious if you actually watched the video. They cite specific examples of additional tests that Toyota did to the B58 engine and that changes to design were requested. While a video like this doesn't cite sources, it appears to be pretty well researched. I rather hope that we are getting a tad tired of someone yelling "fake news" at something that contradicts with their opinions and not questioning them.

Neither the video nor anyone commenting on it suggested that Toyota was involved with the DESIGN of the engine, but rather that they did extensive testing of individual components and asked for changes based on those stress tests. It's not at all an unreasonable supposition that these additional tests would result in a more reliable engine than if testing had been limited to the "regular" tests that BMW does. The video noted that Toyota was surprised by how much effort was put into the design / engineering and BMW was surprised with how much effort was put into testing / reliability.

I have no skin in this game either way, other than owning a car that has a B58 engine and thinking wouldn't it be nifty if there were some real tangible benefits to the collaboration that would benefit me and everyone else that has a car with a B58. Having kept a BMW >10 years before, these silly quality / reliability issues DO start to concern you after the 10th 4 figure repair visit to the shop happens.

Can someone photoshop a supra with bmw style front and rear bumpers, and a real BMW steering wheel? Perhaps a company could sell a conversion kit and we would have a Coupe Z4. Imagine if Toyota actually does make the manual trans in 2020 as promised. This could be the rebirth of the Z4M.

Then I'd wait for the actual Z4, the Z4M will come, waiting for that. This sucks, it's only worth talking points, when the newness factor wears off, it's just a shit car that costs too much and does too little. Would you pay $60k for a 300hp Miata, I sure as hell wouldn't, no matter "the feeel" everyone yaps about, I'd rather the feel of using my money wiser.

I wouldn't bank on a Z4M, the last generation never had one and the ZMs have never sold well (don't ask me why, I've owned six different Z3M and Z4M models!).

I do agree however that this Supra is a massive let down, and like you I'd never consider one.

I'll be curious to see the demographics of Supra buyers. There seems to be a conflict between purchase price and aesthetic sensibility. Would those who could best afford a $50-60K car actually want to be seen driving something so boy racer-ish?

I can see popularity on the used market in a number of years, however.

Its not researched at all. There isn't a single example given what part exactly was revised. Why not? Its just a summed up pile of very vague claims, copied from other stories designed to attrack viewers..

Dont get impressed by words well spoken in a slightly too slowly pace.
That doesnt make it true. It just makes a nice video.
The lack of real world concrete examples is more important. At least if you want to make it convincing...
And finally look at the tech used, look at who the oems are.
And use your mind. maybe 5% of b58 engines end up in a supra.... Do you think BMW and their OEMS are going to radically change their production processes tht late in the development stadium?

Well, I honestly don't see you giving any more information, links or data, just opinion based on no facts. I'm not saying I believe what they are saying in the video, as I said they don't provide any references. I asked the question because I wanted to know if anyone had any better information. Obviously you don't.

EDIT - Looking at the video directly on the YouTube site, they DO provide a list of references for the video. Many, apparently, are in German or Japanese and had to be translated for the video. They also mention they did their own interviews with engineers from both companies. So it would appear that they DID do a good bit of research to make the video, not just "talk slow".

It will, at what cost? M40i is $65k with zero options. Personally don't think BMW left any room for a Z4M with that pricing.

If someone is into the styling it seems like a decent buy, assuming you aren't paying a markup. Supra is only $290 more than the 4-banger Z4.

According to this, it doesn't sound like a Z4M is happening anytime soon.

There are some dealers that are not marking them up.

I can't get over all the people calling this car ugly. It really shows how different people's tastes are. Like all the people wanting to strap a "purse handle" spoiler on it's butt to improve the looks. Really??
